    Oh gosh, I cannot imagine what’s on my MS page. I haven’t logged on in a hot minute. I love so many things on your list: corny dogs from the State Fair of Texas, Tetris, Friends reruns, etc. 🙂

    MYSPACE!! Oh the hours I used to spend on there. I remember the day I deleted my account. RIP. I loved reading through your list. It’s always fun to look back on the things from our past to see how different things are now. I have a box of hand-written notes from friends in 8th and 9th grade – seriously priceless. We were obsessed with boys. 🙂

    Loved this post. I’m going to assume that #52 primarily relates to BW. And this made me nostalgic since I probably would have said at least 60% of these as well given that we were siamese twins connected by eyeballs and a big brown desk during these years.
